My name is Don R. I was riding with a friend on some of the local backroads about a week after a hellacious storm. Needless to say, there was some left over gravel and other debris waiting for us at one of our bends. I hit the bend at around 85 and slid with my tires hitting the dirt mound where the curb should be catapulting me up over my bike through the air. I hit a street sign with my side, slid up it bending it in half, ripping it out of the ground, and sheering off the name of the street on the top. I rolled along the ground before stopping and when the world stopped spinning I did a bit of a self analysis while spitting blood. All told I broke 5 ribs, fractured 3 vertebrae, collapsed my lung, and lacerated my liver and kidney. Thanks to your original Icon Mesh Jacket and Devil Dog helmet (did I mention I am a Marine?) the sign did no external damage. The paramedics and flight crew said your gear saved my life. Unfortunately I never recovered my old gear (they cut it off of me), but I enclosed some of the photos from my recovery. On behalf of my wife, kids, and family, thank you Icon.

Not quite as comfy as an airfence
Ouch, that's gonna leave a mark...wait a sec
I think it might need some new plastics...and everything else
